The U.K.'s Information Commissioner's Office has given Google until July 25 to destroy all the wireless passwords and other personal data its Google Street View cars inadvertently collected from unsecured networks or the company will face a fine. Google admitted last year it had not deleted all of the Wi-Fi data it collected in 2009 and 2010, prompting the ICO to reopen the case against the search giant. "We cooperated fully with the ICO throughout its investigation, and having received its order this morning we are proceeding with our plan to delete the data," a Google spokesperson said.
